I think that's ingenious.
Is there enough clearance to get The Yorkshire Pudding from the payout tray if you win the jackpot? !PUZZLED!

Alan, I noticed you have put an add for a cabinet after 6 years of living with your fine work. As per my other thread on a 4 reeler I have just got working, one thing I was not aware of until working on this was the door size being longer. As such if you stick with lift up type door you will need the right cabinet as a replacement. All my spare cabinets are side openers, but I do have a wooden carcass like what would have been with your machine.

There are definitely less Sheerlines steel cabinet machines in the U.K. I reckon the up lifting door was less popular with operators and they moved to side types. In fact I have a huge bump on my head from the door landing on it multiple times while trying to fix mine...

Hi, Treefrog.
Thank you for resurrecting this old thread. I had completely forgotten about it. It really brings back memories from when that machine was brought back to life. In reading the original thread I noticed the point made about the cash trays being rare and recall that was a big factor in the approach we ended up taking (i.e the mdf and roasting tin solution). I guess the cash tray can only be more rare as time passes. Unless I get lucky, and much as I would like to return it to a fully operational original state, I think I may be doomed to keep the machine as it is (which is not a bad thing, given my son built it and the machine does work perfectly).

I have worked on only a few of these sheerline/starlite/arcadian style
cabinets and on those, never done full restoration just got the mechs
working.

Is the cash drawer the same across all these variants or do they vary?

Yes, the same across the Sheerline, Starlites and Arcadian; not the chequered plate cash boxes though on later machines.

Alan pictures as promised. Ignore the box inside cabinet. Dusty, but solid with some Formica lift....

Not sure why you cannot add pictures in private messages !PUZZLED!
